Concord

Welcome to Concord

As the scene of the first battle of the American Revolutionary War (April 19, 1775), Concord is considered the birthplace of the nation. Today, this picturesque and historic town, located 20 miles west of Boston, features handsome residences, preserved open spaces, thriving commercial centers, and a large offering of cultural and historic resources. Concord residents have carefully preserved the literary heritage of their town – it was once home to Thoreau, Emerson, the Alcotts, and Hawthorne – and are strongly committed to the conservation of generous amounts of open space and wilderness. Justly proud of its rich cultural heritage, Concord continues to foster the arts, boasting a chorus, band, orchestra, four theater companies, two art centers, museums, historic houses and a theater for the performing arts.
